Our Mission

The Toronto Entomologists' Association (TEA) is a non-profit educational and scientific organization formed to promote interest in insects, to encourage co-operation among amateur and professional entomologists, to educate and inform non-entomologists about insects, entomology and related fields, to aid in the preservation of insects and their habitats and to issue publications in support of these objectives.

The TEA's constitution is provided here. It was last updated in February 1996.

Other Offices

Charlotte Teat is the editor of Ontario Insects, the TEA newsletter.

Ann Gray is the TEA representative on the Tommy Thompson Park Users' Group (TTPUG). Tommy Thompson Park is a urban wilderness minutes from downtown Toronto containing the Leslie Street Spit. It is is part of Toronto Parks but it is managed by the Toronto Region Conservation Authority. The two bodies have set up a Users' Group of this park which meets twice a year to be briefed on current plans and to present input on behalf of the organizations they represent. Ann is also the volunteer naturalist for the park.

Karen Yukich monitors the City of Toronto's High Park Resource Group and looks out for any TEA-relevant news from High Park. Karen is also associated with ProtectNatureTO. The TEA share this group's concerns about protecting the wildlife and natural areas of Toronto, although it may not agree with every position it may take.
